I'm not sure if this happens to anyone else; but it seems to happen to me a lot. I woke up to an email from BBC Radio Norfolk who would like to interview me about the Norwich Clandestine Cake Club. I've done radio interviews before; but this is the first one I've done for the Cake Club - I mean it's the first time I've even organised my own meeting.
They called me up and we did a short interview over the phone that will go out on Sunday and then they're coming to the venue during the event, to record a longer item for the Monday Breakfast Show. If I hadn't been through this before I'd be completely freaked out and nervous by now. So at least my past experiences of talking about Live in Love in Laugh in and my ME/CFS has paid off.
Sometimes I think my life is so weird. Fun; but weird.

She now writes about people who want to break free from the constraints of their lives, a subject she's deeply familiar with.
